Thoughts on Ukraine

It is hard to express emotions tugging at me regarding Ukraine. On one hand my heart goes out to the Ukrainian people. They are very much in my prayers. On the other hand I feel a great fear. Circumstances can spiral out of control; pulling many into the conflict. Terrifying.

Tina and I spent a day in Charleston. During the wonderful day we spent there, I was presented with a powerful moment of reflection. There was a stack of protest signs leaning against a court building.

In a park next to the building there was a statue dedicated to a local poet, Henry Timrod. These lines from one of his poems was on the back of the statue.

It seemed both timely and appreciated.
